The Nikon D3 is my primary still camera. 12mp. This is one of the great cameras in the world for location photography.
Leica X1 Digital Compact Camera With Elmarit 24mm f/2.8 ASPH. Lens
So small, so good. If you need a camera that fits in your pocket, look no further.
Compact, comfortable. It’s the center of our SLR video kit, and is equally great as a compact still camera for travel and street photography. 16 Megapixels and 1080 video.
Nikon 14-24mm f/2.8G ED AF-S
The Nikon 14-24 is the widest of our three most heavily used lenses. It’s fantastic.
Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8G ED AF-S
The Nikon 24-70 2.8 is my most heavily used lens. Fast, reliable, crisp, and right in the middle of the zoom range, if we had to have only 1 lens, this would be it.
Nikon 85mm f/1.4G AF-S
The Nikon 85 1.4 is an incredible street, sports, and portrait lens. So fast, so sharp. It also can’t be beat as a long lens for shooting cinematic looking video on a DSLR. My favorite.
Manfrotto 057 Carbon
The best all around tripod we’ve got. The four section carbon fiber legs provide tons of height and stability in a lightweight package. Max weight of 39 lbs., retractable foot spikes, and a bubble level.
Manfrotto Fluid Video Monopod
If you’ve never had a monopod, you don’t know what you’re missing. It’s the fastest and most portable way to get steady shots.
Nikon SB-900 Speedlight
The Nikon SB-900 Speedlight is Nikon’s flagship flash unit, and the most advanced in the Speedlight range. It’s my go to light for smaller subject matter, filling dark areas in ambiently lit areas, or as a very precise light source in multi-light studio environments.
Photek Softlighter Hot Shoe Diffuser Kit with Umbrella (60”)
My favorite umbrella diffuser.
Manfrotto Boom Assembly

FlexTT5 Transceiver Radio Slave for Nikon i-TTL Flash System
Speeding the light baby.
PocketWizard Plus II
The PocketWizard Plus II Transceiver/Relay is a triggering system for your camera or off-camera lighting. This unit can be used as a receiver or transmitter. It can keep pace with our fastest cameras and we find it preferable to triggering with a sync due to the cordless convenience..

The case meets current FAA requirements for carry on luggage.
SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB CF Cards
Memory cards are best when they’re fast, bombproof and have a lot of space. That’s why we love the 64GB Extreme Pro.
SanDisk Extreme Pro 32GB SD Cards
Same deal as above, in the SD variety.
The Nikon MC-30 Remote Trigger Release is a standard (10-pin) remote release with a 2.5′ cord for “10-pin” cameras..
Apple 27″ Cinema Display
We’re up to 4 of these and they are slowly growing on us [Dartanyon at least]. The glossy display takes a little getting used to, but we are finding a place for Apple’s latest display.
Apple MacBook Pro 17
For photos and video, excellente choice.
